Boat Ramp Improvements - Wharf Road, Shoalhaven Heads

Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on Linkedin Email this link

Shoalhaven City Council is considering a repair/upgrade of the boat ramp at Wharf Road in Shoalhaven Heads.

An opportunity has arisen to seek grant funding to realise the improvements. Council is currently putting together an application to the NSW Government to fund this project through the NSW Boating Now program.

The NSW Boating Now Program provides grant funding to improve maritime infrastructure and facilities across NSW. This investment supports the needs of recreational and commercial boaters and enables broader economic and social benefits for communities. The Program is funded from boating licence, registration and other fees collected by Transport for NSW (TfNSW). Since its inception in 2014, the Program has already delivered over 200 boating projects to the benefit of boaters across the State.

Improvements to this boat ramp would have flow-on effects to the surrounding area, so there is a need to consider the project's full impacts and requirements such as parking and pedestrian connectivity. Environmental due diligence through the enaction of impact assessments and specialist studies, and licenses and permits needing to be obtained from State Government Agencies, will be explored, and addressed as the project continues to be developed.

Council has worked with consultant engineers to develop a concept to show the community what this project could look like if it were upgraded to a 2 lane, 2 pontoon facility, with some of the adjoining infrastructure that could be provided if/when funding becomes available.

This project is still in the conceptual stage and is currently unfunded, however, Council would like the community to provide feedback on the need for improvements at this site and the suitability of the current upgrade concept.

Community Engagement

Initial community engagement on this project will be undertaken via a survey. The feedback received via the survey will assist in the decision-making process for the future of the project. Further engagement may be required as the project progresses.
